How it all began:
Received October 2012.
Toyota OEM running boards and trimmed front mud flaps.
November 2012, Heard stories of tailgates disappearing! so I did the hose clamp mod. I wrapped mine with a piece of heat shrink to avoid scratches.
Coin holder from ebay installed with 3M mounting tape.
December 2012, Wet okoles installed. Black and charcoal with half piping.
March 2013, Fox mid travel kit from down south motorsports. Fox extended coilover no resi, TC upper control arms, Fox extended travel FJ shock, ICON 3 leaf mini pack. Did all the installation myself just a few weeks out of my second back surgery
April 2013, worked up enough courage to bake my headlights! BHLM always looks good. Color matched my grille surround at the same time using Duplicolor perfect match. My advice is to sell the chrome and buy an already painted one.
I referred a friend to my salesman and he gave me a new bed mat! I was hoping for cash, but i'll take it!
Keeps the doggies from sliding around.
Realized TW member TXnovice is an old friend, so we met up for some off road fun at Kaena point.
Mid travel flex
Got some konig countersteer 16” gunmetal wheels from JdMeF9SiR2
Great wheels, and a great guy to buy from. Highly recommended!
Color matched the hubcaps
Got them wrapped with some Goodyear Duratracs load C in 265/75/16.
Love the look and stance!
Finally got it tinted! Als tinting in Pearl City is the best! Also got a set of roof racks from my dealer. Repping the valley isle
Ordered some sliders from Beefed taco so I sold the OEM steps... a little too early. I miss my steps
Arm rest cover by Blueinstinct
Somewhere along the way, I also installed a rear view mirror riser from ImMrYo ,and LED interior lights and reverse lights from csjumper2003
Both are highly recommended!
August 2013, received my order from Tyler of pelfreybilt off road. Great person to deal with. Had a little mix up in shipping, but it was quickly resolved to make both sides happy
2012+ front plate bumper with center hoop, 20" rigid LED cutout, Rigid dually fog light cutouts. Rear standard plate bumper with hidden hitch and Rigid SR-MF reverse light cutouts, IFS skid plate, All powder coated. Mid skid on the way.
